Anna Grace Bowen Dean


Anxiously waiting... watching the clock till 3:00pm.


The moment we have been anticipating for 5 years... surreal! 


Joy. 


Her first smile... as we left the hotel for dinner. 


A quiet neighborhood stroll in Nanning. 




 Two happy brothers. 


Another happy brother and a really grateful Daddy. 



All tucked in.

Praise God for keeping His promise from Psalm 68:6. Such a gift you were given today.

We celebrate with you, and will pray that Anna Grace will quickly let down her guard and let your love fill up her little heart.
